Barossa Valley Destination Guide
If you’re a lover of wine, superb food, stunning views and good times then Barossa Valley is for you! It is one of Australia’s the world’s finest wine regions and makes up for 21% of the country’s wine.
Located only an hour out of Adelaide, you will know you have arrived the moment you drive through the famous Seppeltsfield road, which is lined by palm trees with vineyards running up rolling hills either side.
Although wine tasting is a high priority, there is plenty of other activities that will make you fall in love with Barossa. Whether it be trying the region’s culinary delights, indulging in a spa experience, or simply taking in the serene landscape, the valley will seduce you.
For the travelling golfer, it is a perfect day off if you’re playing around Adelaide especially considering its convenient proximity. However, if you are looking for a round Tanunda Pines will fix your thirst.
THINGS TO DO IN BAROSSA VALLEY
Prepare your palate, you’re going wine tasting
The first, last and maybe only thing you will do in Barossa Valley is taste fine wine. Wine has been a way of life in the region since 1842. These grape growers and winemakers know what they are doing with knowledge and experience dating back over seven generations.
When you realise there are over 150 wineries and 80 cellar doors in Barossa, planning your route might be overwhelming. You’ve got your world-renowned labels like Penfolds and Jacob’s Creek, the world’s best shiraz at Kellermeister wines or a chance to try a 100-year-old single vintage wine at Seppeltsfield.
On our South Australian golf tour, we will be immersing into the history of the Barossa with a world-class degustation at Langmeil Winery. They were one of the first winemakers in the region back in 1842 and claim to have the world’s oldest shiraz vineyard.
Enjoy lunch at Australia’s favourite farm
Maggie Beer is an iconic name in the Aussie food scene. Her cookbooks and sauces appear in almost every Australian’s kitchen. So why not visit her farm in Barossa where it all began for the acclaimed cook, author and restaurant owner.
If you haven’t heard of Maggie or her products, you can taste all her produce at the Maggie Beer Farm shop. Enjoy a picnic basket accompanied with caramelised onion, salad on wood-oven bread paired perfectly with a glass of wine.
On our South Australian golf tour, we will visit the Farm Shop before heading to The Farm eatery to indulge further into Maggie Beer’s delights. There we will enjoy a three-course lunch showcasing Barossa’s freshest ingredients.
